gouldian finches - mom & babies



Here's Lana with her 3 babies - 1 week old. She's a great mommy, keeping their crops full all the time, just not sure why she's stepping on Baby Three's neck...

I have really enjoyed your blog - and I have been looking at pictures at your other site of the Gouldian finches-I find this all so very interesting and beautiful!! The baby Gouldian finches look so funny at this age!!! A lovely blog you have built here.

Oh how cute they are! So ugly, yet so adorable!

I'd like to think Lana has a protective foot on baby 3's back, just letting him know she's there!

Thank you Ocean - I checked out your blog - very nice photos!
Naturewoman - my thoughts exactly!
Lynn - I think she might be saying - "don't even think about picking up my babies!"
